Long-time CBRE senior vice president Eric Yarbro has joined Colliers International as executive managing director.

Yarbro spent 27 years at CBRE, arranging more than $500 million in real estate transactions and representing clients such as General Motors, AOL, Eastman Kodak, Prudential Financial, Fifth Third Bank and Western Union. In his new role at Colliers, Yarbro will focus on representing, among others, institutional owners, corporations, landlords and developers.

“Entrepreneurial in his outlook, Eric is an expert deal-maker and collaborative specialist who is valued by his clients for his innovation, integrity, and ability to successfully plan, execute, and manage short- and long-term strategies across a wide and complex range of real estate requirements,” said Joseph Harbert, president of Colliers International’s Eastern region.

In 2004, Yarbro founded an organization for African-American CBRE employees. The group, which now has more than 400 members, is the largest association of client-facing African American real estate professionals in the industry, according to a Colliers’ release.

Prior to his time at CBRE, Yarbro was a vice president at Merrill Lynch.
